Last week I downloaded Windows 10. Since then my Internet connection has slowed from the 30 mbps I pay for down to 1 mbps. I have made sure all my drivers are up to date, updated and performed a full scan with my anti-spyware/anti-malware software, and performed all the disconnections of sharing that I can think of. Is there some way to restore my Internet speed? This is regarding Wi-fi speed, and all other devices in our home on Wi-fi (which are still on Windows 8) are performing at full Internet speed.

What about your other programs, is there ISP also slow?

Have your provider test your service.

Unplug the modem power cord for a count of 10 to reset it.
